Last year Tenue de Nîmes was invited to New Castle by Nigel Cabourn. He wanted to share a sneak preview with us of his 2011 Spring Summer collection. He told us about his search for old designs, materials and fabrics. He shared some of his most bizarre finds with us and told us about his quest to put these finds in a contemporary, Nigel Cabourn perspective. This search for a perspective led him to this season’s theme: The Submarine. This is how Nigel created a naval season with a true Cabourn touch. We were honored to get such an outstanding introduction to the collection. In Tenue de Nîmes’ opinion this short interview shines an extra light on the extraordinary SS11 collection by Nigel Cabourn. Enjoy the show.
